Blood Orange Cocktails

There's nothing like freshly squeezed juice in cocktails.  You don't need to be a mixologist to enjoy this low calorie, sugar free drink.  We are usually the tequila or vodka soda type of girls, but this drink was amazing and we got some vitamin C too!

  • Lemons 
  • Basil
  • Vodka
